we would see in the afternoon very light, very spotty, and again east of cleveland, variable cloudiness everywhere else although as those clouds have moved in now, want to go mostly cloudy in most areas. mid 20s your forecast high temperature this afternoon. we will drop back to about 19 tonight as lake-effect snow showers continue off and on out in the snowbelt. little-to-no accumulation and during the day tomorrow, most of us will actually get a nice break from any rain or snow. mostly cloudy skies your forecast now it will be a little windy tomorrow. so that will make 28 feel a lot cooler. but hey, at least when we get close, a few degrees closer to that 30-degree mark for tomorrow. so, all the talk really in the world of weather is focused on this major east coast storm or the potential for a major east coast storm. because it's not there yet. it hasn't quite come to fruition. i'll tell you tonight through
blizzard conditions. coastal flooding and power outages. all here through the appalachian mountains, portions of the deep south, the mid south, virginia is going to get hammered by this thing. and then it will move up the eastern seaboard into the northeast and new england through the weekend. d.c. in the cross hairs here for major snow potentially up to two feet. so, what does that mean for us? you know, it's funny our friends to the south getting the snow, but here in cleveland, we are like -- are we going to see anything from this? now most of it is going to stay well far off to our south and east. however -- there is a chance if we see any shift in the track that might take it a little bit farther to the north, my friends south of akron into canton, wooster, mt. vernon, dover, we could see a few snow showers friday night into saturday. certainly nothing like what they are going to see on the eastern
friday night through saturday, south of akron, on the order of one to three inches. most of us will be dry this weekend and i will have your weekend forecast in just a few minutes. >> "q": super. thank you very much. all right. >> laura: all right. well there's still more to come on cleveland 19 news at noon. >> "q": yeah, including this little guy who knows exactly what to do for dinner.

>> "q": after long day when you get home, there's one question most of us always hear that's -- what's for dinner? >> laura: sometimes we talk about dinner the day before, too. this dog knows what she wants. >> do you want potatoes? >> laura: that it's i want potatoes. the parents in the video were asking their son to help make potatoes in the kitchen and the boy said he didn't want potatoes so he asked the dog and the dog definitely wanted them. when that happened the little boy agreed he would help dad make potatoes in the kitchen because of course mishka wants -- >> "q": if a dog wants to ask for potatoes, you got it make them. >> laura: did they teach her that? >> "q": a smart pup. >> samantha: let's look at your forecast. hey if the dogs like to play in the snow, we have plenty of that right? few flakes flying around. no additional accumulation in the forecast today. chance for snow south of akron
